Apple Watch Series 5 Will Feature an Always-On Display & New Finishes

Melba Vasquez | 11 September, 2019, 03:25

For those that want to really personalize their watch, the Apple Watch Studio will allow customers to pick their casing and watch band with more than 1,000 combinations.

Apple Inc. showed off updated Apple Watch models that come in new ceramic and titanium cases and a new always-on screen. Yet, the new Apple Watch still promises the same 18 hours of battery life as previous models.

During its keynote today, Apple detailed its ongoing research related to the Apple Watch, including the device's ability to help users detect the presence of a condition called AFib.

Apple Watch Series 5 features an electrical heart rate sensor (that powers the ECG app), a second generation optical sensor, a built-in compass (powering the new Compass app), a barometric altimeter, an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, fall detection, as well as International Emergency Calling and Emergency SOS.

WatchOS 6 will also bring new health and fitness features, including a new Cycle Tracking app for users to log information about their menstrual cycles. Beyond that, you can expect the same 40mm and 44mm watch bodies. Cellular Apple Watch Series 5 models will offer global emergency calling with a push and hold of the side button.

When the always-on display is running, you'll still be able to see the time and your various complications, though they'll look dimmer than usual.

After all, Android watches have had the Google Play Store available on the wrist for years. There's also a built-in compass.

The Apple Watch Series 5 GPS model starts from S$599 and the Apple Watch Series 5 GPS + Cellular model starts from S$749. This should offer peace of mind to worldwide travelers. The stainless steel cases will be available in gold, silver and space black while the aluminum option comes in silver, gold and space gray. Apple's new smartwatch has been unveiled to the world, and it's coming soon.

The Apple Watch 5 was announced during the company's September 10 event alongside the next iPhone.

The speaker on the smartwatch is 50 percent louder than that of the Apple Watch Series 3, Apple claims. The new iPad also comes with a faster Apple A10 Fusion processor and support for the Smart Keyboard accessory for the first time. And if you opt for an aluminum one, you will be pleased to know that the Series 5 is now made from 100% recycled 7000 series aluminum.
